Have a Sports Injury? A Chiropractor Can Get You Back on Track
May 21, 2018
With the year-round sunny and warm weather in Naples, it’s no wonder people enjoy sports so much. From golf and tennis to flag football and softball, there’s a lot to play. Unfortunately, injuries happen. Some injuries are really painful, while others are just bothersome enough to keep you out of the game. Read on to learn how a chiropractor can help and get you off the bench sooner.
How Does a Chiropractor Treat Sports Injuries?
Whether you are a “weekend warrior,” playing your favorite game every Saturday and Sunday, or a day-in and day-out exercise fanatic, an injury is always a possibility.
Lots of sports injuries are caused by forceful impact. But then again, tennis players have been known to suffer painful injuries running across the court or stretching to return a powerful serve. In any case, your chiropractor can relieve the pain of a sports injury and help you recover.
For instance, spinal mobilization can be used for patients that need a gentle approach. Tools or basic stretching can be included in a treatment program to release pressure in joints.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation, ice, heat and electric stimulation may also be used to promote healing. Scheduling regular visits with a chiropractor can help you heal faster from a sports injury.
Should I See a Chiropractor?
If you have a sports injury, then you should definitely see a chiropractor. However, routine visits to your chiropractor can help you perform better and assist with balance.
When you play sports, you are asking your body to perform at its best. In these circumstances, sprains, strains, tears, stiffness and pain can result. Chiropractic treatment helps alleviate the discomfort these cause and can even help prevent injuries to your neck, shoulders, knees, ankles and back.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Prevent Sport Injuries?
With regular adjustments, you spine will be in alignment and balanced. This way, your body can function better and injuries are, therefore, less likely to occur.
If you have experienced any kind of sports injury that has resulted in neck or back pain, a sprain or strain, or any other kind of discomfort, schedule a consultation with a chiropractor.
